In honour of World Earth Day, a homage to the colour of green and its many companion colours ...

How many shades of green
Olive green
Dark green
Light green
Yellow green
How many shades of yellow
Deep yellow
Rose yellow
Sun yellow
Morning light yellow
How many shades of light
How much light
How much Beauty in the world
How much Light-
How much- God.
         (How Many Shades of Green by Shalom Freedman, 2008)

Green-coloured oyster freshwater pearls, vintage style bronze filigree setting and cream-on-olive floral cabochon.

Aventurine in greens, yellows, purples & blues, smoked topaz crystal rondell gold core beads, black crystal rondell gold core beds, cherry red foil gold-plated core beads, Swarovski crystal bronze pearls, vintage Ethiopian cross pendant. (Special thanks to Angela Clark for drawing my attention to these unique crosses which she brought back from Ethiopia. You can view more of them at her store: Boutique Beads, North Fitzroy, Melbourne.)
